Wednesday, August 08, 2018 (PW) — At least I can see the morning rays penetrating powerfully on the eastern horizon of South Sudan. However before I gradually open the strong opaque curtains that were hindering my eyes from seeing light, I raised a standing ovation for the country’s top leadership and most importantly to the duo who had appeared initially to be forming an interphase of water and Abyei oil.

In my capacity as a citizen and a student who was massively affected by the on-going economic crisis within our boarders, I delightfully welcome the decision of our leaders with a hope that all the economic turbulences will soon subsided. It is crystal clear that the people of South Sudan and more so those wallowing in various camps have suffered in dignified silence for so long.

It had reached a time when the past happenings had to be forgotten and strike a new mechanism to propel the country forward. This should explains why I support the signing of peace regardless of the criterion use to arrive at it. For those who still doubt the process, it is incumbent upon them to make a decision on whether to clear the doubts and join us or to still remain on hold until the doubt fades away.

Some other citizens and I know very well what it means to put signatures on paper after being very tire fighting for no substantial reason. After all what we are supposed to care about is the economics titivation which the peace deal carry with it. Already we have seen the positive impacts through the rare dollars which had initially wiped away the value of our pound.

As a supporter of peace agreement, I will only urge the government to effect modalities to implement the peace deal as fast as possible. This is because our people in the camps are really preferring to come home to the estrangements and sufferings which they are currently undertaking. It is prudence to put this into considering and open ways as fast as possible to allow their smooth returning home. The finger -pointing rounds are now over.

Better still even as people openly expressed their doubts on whether the peace will last or not, it is sensible to know that this step of our leaders has really impressed both the economists on the ground and those aspiring to follow the economics lifeline. I have no doubt that this step is a recipe of economic extrapolation. The real income and country’s GDP will increase as the currency gains its value.

The money of individuals will soon bring home some worthwhile quantities of respective commodities as compared to before when the country’s currency was completely devaluated. Our citizens will go around transacting their daily businesses in harmony and tranquility. This is healthy and at least we will be traced in the economic pathway once again.

Our country is a cradle of resources and the more we purpose to make use of them unanimously, the better for the country at large. May peace have place in our country, now and forever? Congratulations once again to his Excellency the president of the Republic of South Sudan, Salva Kiir Mayardit and the team who successfully coordinated the process. Viva! Viva!
